lyrics

It was in sweet Senegal that my foes did me enthrall
For the lands of Virginia, -ginia, O
Torn from that lovely shore, and must never see it more
And alas! I am weary, weary O

All on that charming coast is no bitter snow and frost
Like the lands of Virginia, -ginia, O
Their streams for ever flow, and their flowers for ever blow
And alas! I am weary, weary O

The burden I must bear, while the cruel scourge I fear
In the lands of Virginia, -ginia, O
And I think on friends most dear, with a bitter, bitter tear
And alas! I am weary, weary O
